Bridget Enchill Obeng has been arrested in Ghana after being on the run for many months

A female Nigerian fraudster who has been on the run for many months has been arrested by the police in Ghana.

A notorious Nigerian female serial fraudster, Bridget Enchill Obeng, has been arrested by operatives of the Criminal Investigations Department [CID], of the Ghana Police Service after being on their most wanted list for over nine months.

Daily Guide reports that Obeng was declared wanted after she and her gang had duped over 10 Ghanaians of money running into millions of Cedis under the pretext of selling vehicles to them.

The suspect who used the operational name of Naana was apprehended at Baah Yard, Awoshie, Accra, after reportedly successfully playing hide-and-seek with the Police over the period she was declared wanted.

The Police, it was gathered, had earlier arrested a different person they had suspected was her and later realized it was a mistaken identity.

However, upon a tip-off, Obeng was later arrested after she defrauded yet another person in Osu and handed over to the CID for investigation.

The CID’s Director of Operations, ACP Peter Gyimah who confirmed the arrest of Obeng, said she displayed various vehicles for sale on the social media, claiming to be a Customs officer and that the cars were on auction, with her contact numbers for victims to call her.

ACP Gyimah added that when interested persons contact Obeng, she would arrange to either meet them or asked her accomplices to do so and in the process, defrauded the victims of various sums ranging from GH¢9,000 to GH¢50,000 and then disappeared into thin air.

The Police spokesman said that investigations revealed that the suspect and her accomplices often use apartments whose owners lived outside the country for their nefarious activities.
